BB&T, Winston-Salem, NC, plans to build as many as 50 branches this year. It currently operates more than 1,100 banking offices in the Carolinas, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Indiana and Washington, D.C.


Claritas announced the formation of the Integras division earlier this month.
